敦煌石窟经历了千百年的历史,由于自然或人为的破坏,现存壁画与创建的当初有很大的不同,由于光照、空气变化等方面的影响,使颜料产生变色、褪色等状况。因此,在认识和研究敦煌艺术时,如果不了解这些历史变化,而把变化之后的现状作为当时的艺术特点,必然会产生对艺术史现象的错误认识。本次讲演作者将从敦煌壁画制作过程和颜料变色特点等方面来分析敦煌壁画现状与原貌的差距,并追溯七十多年来研究者们对敦煌壁画原貌的探讨,提出了认识和研究敦煌壁画原貌的思路。
Dunhuang Grottoes have been experienced enormously physical changes due to the affection of natural and human factors over the past thousand years. This talk will trace these changes as shown in Dunghuang murals of the past and the present by detailing the producing process, uses of pigments, and the discoloration over time, which sheds light on the understanding of original features of Dunhuang murals.
